Let me see pics of those mATX and ITX systems!
SO I've been drooling over some tech recently. I want to build a htpc for movies, tv (DLed), and casual gaming (have a separate gaming rig). Of course I don't have a TV or enought money to buy said system but that doesn't stop me from cheaking prices everyweek and dreaming about it. lol

So I figured this would be a good spot for me (and others) to see what some of you guys have done with htpc's or even just your regular boxes that are in a smaller form factor!

I really want to get this
NCIX.com - Buy Zotac GF9300-D-E MINI-ITX LGA775 GeForce 9300 DDR2 1PCI-E16 2SATA2 RAID GBLAN Wifi HDMI Motherboard - GF9300-D-E In Canada.
and this
NCIX.com - Buy Silverstone Sugo SG05B Black SFF MINI-ITX MINI-DTX Case 1X5.25 Slim 1X2.5IN 1X3.5INT W/ Sfx 300W PSU - SST-SG05B In Canada.
but cut a big hole in the side to allow for aftermarket vid card cooling!


What have you guys got?

Cool thanks guys!

Keep em coming.
CMetaphor you can't really see whats going on in that second pic. I'd really like to see the guts. :)

You know, you can be one step closer to having a home theater, just by buying one of my TVs! :thumb:


Also, I'm using my main PC as my HTPC, since I'm using one of my TVs and have a nice audio setup. Trust me, these TVs are amazing. :haha:

Sorry about the quality (my mom has the good camera on vacation now). I'll take a better one of the inside soon. The second pic is Supposed to show the clearance between the top-mounting HR-03 GT, the GeminII CPU cooler and the PSU. Basically... there's barely milimeters or space to spare, but it works:thumb:

There simply isn't a nicer looking mATX case on the market IMO. I built my mom a computer, and went with the SG03... it's just beautiful, well crafted and easy to work with considering it's small foot print.

A tad pricey though, but I'd buy it again...

Mighty mite
Sugo-03 / Asus P5E-VM / Q8200 @ 3.2g / 4g OCZ / ATI 3870 X2 / X-Fi Pci-E / 2X WD 320g Raid 0 / Logitech S520/LX5 wireless key/mouse / Klipsch 2.1 THX / LG BR/HD combo drive / Syncmaster 943bwx 19" wide screen

*the only con I saw in this beautiful case was the 1 rom bay...but putting in the LG BlueRay/HD drive turned that into a sleak feature

With this one your gaming can be more than causual, and you can play your favorite video at same time without lag your game at all.....

for now my son use it , it have a maximus extreme with a q6600, ( will be change for a 2 core ) and a Intel DG45FC, ( that's the Itx, still need a CPU... ) I'm building an other thing for my son, a place the Mozart in the loundge. I have also to install the TT 7" touch screen.

This is mine:




I don't think I could have jammed this much hardware into a smaller case.
